YOKE REPLACEMENT - CONTINUED
CHECK VERTICAL STEER PIVOT CLEARANCE - CONTINUED
When adding or removing shims, only top pivot point is shimmed.
With new bearings (11) and shims (7) installed, total movement should be .005 - .045 in (.13 - 1.14 mm). On used roller,
total vertical movement should not exceed .075 in (1.91 mm). If movement is too great, clearance can be reduced by
adding spacers at vertical pin joints. If movement is not enough, increase clearance by removing spacers at vertical
If proper clearance cannot be obtained with spacers, steer pivot housing should be disassembled. Bushings or any other
worn components should be replaced.
CHECK HORIZONTAL STEER PIVOT CLEARANCE
Position roller on a hard level surface. Stop engine and
apply parking brake (TM 5-3895-379-10).
Attach base of dial indicator to top of steering pivot
housing. Set dial indicator actuator against front face
of rear frame.
Set dial indicator to zero.
Put a hydraulic jack under rear frame at pivot assem-
Raise hydraulic jack and record reading on dial indica-
With new bearings, bushings and pins, total recorded movement should be .004 - .030 in (.10 - .76 mm). On used roller,
total movement should not exceed .050 in (1.27 mm).
If movement is too much, steering pivot housing should be disassembled. Bushings, bearings and any other worn com-
ponents should be replaced.
